Vibhuti Patel

Owner

My name is Vibhuti and I am the Franchisee of Building Kidz of Palo Alto. After having 2 daughters and experiencing the value of high-quality early childhood education personally, I have committed my energy to my passion for creating a world-class environment where children can excel. I have both qualifications and experience in early childhood education, and I also have a bachelor’s degree in Information Systems from the University of Texas and an MBA from San Francisco State University. Prior to becoming a Building Kidz Franchisee, I spent 8 years working as a Business Analyst at various tech companies.

My husband and I chose to send our daughters to Building Kidz school and personally have experienced the value of the core principles of Building Kidz. The integration of performing arts with an age-appropriate curriculum, learning through life experiences, and a focus on academic excellence provide a solid foundation for every child.

Please reach out to us to learn more about our facility, our program, and why we are so passionate about what we do!
